// dear imgui: Platform Backend for SDL2
// This needs to be used along with a Renderer (e.g. DirectX11, OpenGL3, Vulkan..)
// (Info: SDL2 is a cross-platform general purpose library for handling windows, inputs, graphics context creation, etc.)
// (Prefer SDL 2.0.5+ for full feature support.)
// Implemented features:
// [X] Platform: Clipboard support.
// [X] Platform: Mouse support. Can discriminate Mouse/TouchScreen.
// [X] Platform: Keyboard support. Since 1.87 we are using the io.AddKeyEvent() function. Pass ImGuiKey values to all key functions e.g. ImGui::IsKeyPressed(ImGuiKey_Space). [Legacy SDL_SCANCODE_* values will also be supported unless IMGUI_DISABLE_OBSOLETE_KEYIO is set]
// [X] Platform: Gamepad support. Enabled with 'io.ConfigFlags |= ImGuiConfigFlags_NavEnableGamepad'.
// [X] Platform: Mouse cursor shape and visibility. Disable with 'io.ConfigFlags |= ImGuiConfigFlags_NoMouseCursorChange'.
// [X] Platform: Basic IME support. App needs to call 'SDL_SetHint(SDL_HINT_IME_SHOW_UI, "1");' before SDL_CreateWindow()!.
// You can use unmodified imgui_impl_* files in your project. See examples/ folder for examples of using this.
// Prefer including the entire imgui/ repository into your project (either as a copy or as a submodule), and only build the backends you need.
// If you are new to Dear ImGui, read documentation from the docs/ folder + read the top of imgui.cpp.
// Read online:
// (minor and older changes stripped away, please see git history for details)
// 2023-04-06: Inputs: Avoid calling SDL_StartTextInput()/SDL_StopTextInput() as they don't only pertain to IME. It's unclear exactly what their relation is to IME. (#6306)
// 2023-04-04: Inputs: Added support for io.AddMouseSourceEvent() to discriminate ImGuiMouseSource_Mouse/ImGuiMouseSource_TouchScreen. (#2702)
// 2023-02-23: Accept SDL_GetPerformanceCounter() not returning a monotonically increasing value. (#6189, #6114, #3644)
// 2023-02-07: Implement IME handler (io.SetPlatformImeDataFn will call SDL_SetTextInputRect()/SDL_StartTextInput()).
// 2023-02-07: *BREAKING CHANGE* Renamed this backend file from imgui_impl_sdl.cpp/.h to imgui_impl_sdl2.cpp/.h in prevision for the future release of SDL3.
// 2023-02-02: Avoid calling SDL_SetCursor() when cursor has not changed, as the function is surprisingly costly on Mac with latest SDL (may be fixed in next SDL version).
// 2023-02-02: Added support for SDL 2.0.18+ preciseX/preciseY mouse wheel data for smooth scrolling + Scaling X value on Emscripten (bug?). (#4019, #6096)
// 2023-02-02: Removed SDL_MOUSEWHEEL value clamping, as values seem correct in latest Emscripten. (#4019)
// 2023-02-01: Flipping SDL_MOUSEWHEEL 'wheel.x' value to match other backends and offer consistent horizontal scrolling direction. (#4019, #6096, #1463)
// 2022-10-11: Using 'nullptr' instead of 'NULL' as per our switch to C++11.
// 2022-09-26: Inputs: Disable SDL 2.0.22 new "auto capture" (SDL_HINT_MOUSE_AUTO_CAPTURE) which prevents drag and drop across windows for multi-viewport support + don't capture when drag and dropping. (#5710)
// 2022-09-26: Inputs: Renamed ImGuiKey_ModXXX introduced in 1.87 to ImGuiMod_XXX (old names still supported).
// 2022-03-22: Inputs: Fix mouse position issues when dragging outside of boundaries. SDL_CaptureMouse() erroneously still gives out LEAVE events when hovering OS decorations.
// 2022-03-22: Inputs: Added support for extra mouse buttons (SDL_BUTTON_X1/SDL_BUTTON_X2).
// 2022-02-04: Added SDL_Renderer* parameter to ImGui_ImplSDL2_InitForSDLRenderer(), so we can use SDL_GetRendererOutputSize() instead of SDL_GL_GetDrawableSize() when bound to a SDL_Renderer.
// 2022-01-26: Inputs: replaced short-lived io.AddKeyModsEvent() (added two weeks ago) with io.AddKeyEvent() using ImGuiKey_ModXXX flags. Sorry for the confusion.
// 2021-01-20: Inputs: calling new io.AddKeyAnalogEvent() for gamepad support, instead of writing directly to io.NavInputs[].
// 2022-01-17: Inputs: calling new io.AddMousePosEvent(), io.AddMouseButtonEvent(), io.AddMouseWheelEvent() API (1.87+).
// 2022-01-17: Inputs: always update key mods next and before key event (not in NewFrame) to fix input queue with very low framerates.
// 2022-01-12: Update mouse inputs using SDL_MOUSEMOTION/SDL_WINDOWEVENT_LEAVE + fallback to provide it when focused but not hovered/captured. More standard and will allow us to pass it to future input queue API.
// 2022-01-12: Maintain our own copy of MouseButtonsDown mask instead of using ImGui::IsAnyMouseDown() which will be obsoleted.
// 2022-01-10: Inputs: calling new io.AddKeyEvent(), io.AddKeyModsEvent() + io.SetKeyEventNativeData() API (1.87+). Support for full ImGuiKey range.
// 2021-07-29: Inputs: MousePos is correctly reported when the host platform window is hovered but not focused (using SDL_GetMouseFocus() + SDL_HINT_MOUSE_FOCUS_CLICKTHROUGH, requires SDL 2.0.5+)
// 2021-06-29: *BREAKING CHANGE* Removed 'SDL_Window* window' parameter to ImGui_ImplSDL2_NewFrame() which was unnecessary.
// 2021-06-29: Reorganized backend to pull data from a single structure to facilitate usage with multiple-contexts (all g_XXXX access changed to bd->XXXX).
// 2021-03-22: Rework global mouse pos availability check listing supported platforms explicitly, effectively fixing mouse access on Raspberry Pi. (#2837, #3950)
// 2020-05-25: Misc: Report a zero display-size when window is minimized, to be consistent with other backends.
// 2020-02-20: Inputs: Fixed mapping for ImGuiKey_KeyPadEnter (using SDL_SCANCODE_KP_ENTER instead of SDL_SCANCODE_RETURN2).
// 2019-12-17: Inputs: On Wayland, use SDL_GetMouseState (because there is no global mouse state).
// 2019-12-05: Inputs: Added support for ImGuiMouseCursor_NotAllowed mouse cursor.
// 2019-07-21: Inputs: Added mapping for ImGuiKey_KeyPadEnter.
// 2019-04-23: Inputs: Added support for SDL_GameController (if ImGuiConfigFlags_NavEnableGamepad is set by user application).
// 2019-03-12: Misc: Preserve DisplayFramebufferScale when main window is minimized.
// 2018-12-21: Inputs: Workaround for Android/iOS which don't seem to handle focus related calls.
// 2018-11-30: Misc: Setting up io.BackendPlatformName so it can be displayed in the About Window.
// 2018-11-14: Changed the signature of ImGui_ImplSDL2_ProcessEvent() to take a 'const SDL_Event*'.
// 2018-08-01: Inputs: Workaround for Emscripten which doesn't seem to handle focus related calls.
// 2018-06-29: Inputs: Added support for the ImGuiMouseCursor_Hand cursor.
// 2018-06-08: Misc: Extracted imgui_impl_sdl.cpp/.h away from the old combined SDL2+OpenGL/Vulkan examples.
// 2018-06-08: Misc: ImGui_ImplSDL2_InitForOpenGL() now takes a SDL_GLContext parameter.
// 2018-05-09: Misc: Fixed clipboard paste memory leak (we didn't call SDL_FreeMemory on the data returned by SDL_GetClipboardText).
// 2018-03-20: Misc: Setup io.BackendFlags ImGuiBackendFlags_HasMouseCursors flag + honor ImGuiConfigFlags_NoMouseCursorChange flag.
// 2018-02-16: Inputs: Added support for mouse cursors, honoring ImGui::GetMouseCursor() value.
// 2018-02-06: Misc: Removed call to ImGui::Shutdown() which is not available from 1.60 WIP, user needs to call CreateContext/DestroyContext themselves.
// 2018-02-06: Inputs: Added mapping for ImGuiKey_Space.
// 2018-02-05: Misc: Using SDL_GetPerformanceCounter() instead of SDL_GetTicks() to be able to handle very high framerate (1000+ FPS).
// 2018-02-05: Inputs: Keyboard mapping is using scancodes everywhere instead of a confusing mixture of keycodes and scancodes.
// 2018-01-20: Inputs: Added Horizontal Mouse Wheel support.
// 2018-01-19: Inputs: When available (SDL 2.0.4+) using SDL_CaptureMouse() to retrieve coordinates outside of client area when dragging. Otherwise (SDL 2.0.3 and before) testing for SDL_WINDOW_INPUT_FOCUS instead of SDL_WINDOW_MOUSE_FOCUS.
// 2018-01-18: Inputs: Added mapping for ImGuiKey_Insert.
// 2017-08-25: Inputs: MousePos set to -FLT_MAX,-FLT_MAX when mouse is unavailable/missing (instead of -1,-1).
// 2016-10-15: Misc: Added a void* user_data parameter to Clipboard function handlers.
